Roofing

Steep pitched roofing, tiles, slate, thatching and ceramics are a few of the more common roofing mareials employed on Seychelles Resorts constructed by Laxmanbhai.  Many projects require the use of long spans of roofing without the clutter of mid-floor ground support columns.  This portfolio shows the extensive construction of timber roof sections in rooms and public spaces.
